|Niccolo' di Bernardo dei Machiavelli 1469-1527
Niccolo Machiavelli , if we were to describe him in completely neutral terms, was an Italian diplomat, politician, historian, philosopher, humanist, and writer of the Renaissance era. Many folks of less than a neutral viewpoint view him as an advisor to tyrants. Indeed this is so prevalent in the modern era that the term Machiavellianism was coined to characterize unscrupulos politicos of the sort he was thought to advise. In his best known publication THE PRINCE he appears to actually endorse immoral behaviors of a variety of sorts including dishonesty, and klling innocents, as normal and effective in politics. Sound a bit like a matched set of politicos we all know from America whose communial last name starts with a big honking "C"?
Well, Machiavelli had to deal with the natural tendicies of dictators to want to disarm the populace they control. We'd call it "gun control" today, that favorite cause of Democrats. Yet his advice to the would be gun grabbers of his day who actually had the power and authority to collect all the civilian weapons was not what you'd expect. So for the edification of all those Democrats and their fellow travling globalist, Salifists, Commies, Socialists, and what Gen. Jackson referred to as "hellish banditi" here is Machiavelli's own advice on the confiscation of civilian guns:
"When you disarm the people you commence to offend them and show that you distrust them either through cowardice or lack of confidence, and both of these opinions generate hatred. "
Hoot! there it is lefties! Straight from the Great Machiavelli. If you want to be either a great and successful democratic leader, or a successful tyrant leave the people's damn guns alone. It just looks like gun confiscation is never going to be a good idea.
